Why do some autobiographical events feel as if they happened yesterday, whereas others feel like ancient history? Such temporal distance perceptions have surprisingly little to do with actual calendar time distance. Instead, psychologists have found that people typically perceive positive autobiographical events as overly recent, while perceiving negative events as overly distant. The origins of this temporal distance bias have been sought in self-enhancement strivings and mood congruence between autobiographical events and chronic mood. As such, past research exclusively focused on the evaluative features of autobiographical events, while neglecting semantic features. To close this gap, we introduce a semantic congruence model. Capitalizing on the Big Two self-perception dimensions, Study 1 showed that high semantic congruence between recalled autobiographical events and trait self-perceptions render the recalled events subjectively recent. Specifically, interpersonally warm (competent) individuals perceived autobiographical events reflecting warmth (competence) as relatively recent, but warm (competent) individuals did not perceive events reflecting competence (warmth) as relatively recent. Study 2 found that conscious perceptions of congruence mediate these effects. Studies 3 and 4 showed that neither mood congruence nor self-enhancement account for these results. Study 5 extended the results from the Big Two to the Big Five self-perception dimensions, while affirming the independence of the semantic congruence model from evaluative influences.
Exactly what had happened there nobody would ever know, except the creechies,for the humans were trying to cover up their own betrayals and mistakes. The outlineswere clear, though. An organized bunch of creechies, led by Selver, had been let intothe Arsenal and the Hangars, and turned loose with dynamite, grenades, guns, andflamethrowers to totally destruct the city and slaughter the humans. It was an insidejob, the fact that HQ was the first place blown up proved that. Lyubov of course hadbeen in on it, and his little green buddies had proved just as grateful as you mightexpect, and cut his throat like the others. At least, Gosse and Benton claimed to haveseen him dead the morning after the massacre. But could you believe any of them,actually? You could assume that any human left alive in Central after that night wasmore or less of a traitor. A traitor to his race.
The history of innovation reveals consistent patterns. Whether it happened yesterday or two centuries ago, whether the impact was disruptive or just helpful, a successful innovation usually follows roughly the same path. For a start, innovation requires a gradual process. Eureka moments are rare and possibly non-existent. Innovation happens with the help of big dollops of hindsight and long stretches of preparation (not to mention multiple wrong turns along the way!) 2b1af7f3a8
